Opened in 1978 as a soup kitchen “to help the neediest in greater Stamford meet the most basic need for food in a dignified and respectful environment,” the Center serves 600,000 nutritious meals a year. Over the last 38 years, the organization has grown to become one of the largest soup kitchens in Connecticut and the only one in the area that is open 365 days per year, providing three meals daily.
